1980, Richard H Hinson started building boats for his friends,
but the story begins long before
of his life, Richard has had a love for the outdoors and
all kinds of outdoor sports. Along with this personal interest
in the outdoors, Richard had a strong desire to find the
very best hunting and fishing spots that no one had been
This desire lead Richard to try all kinds of ways to
find the places that still had the biggest and best game
available. He tried every different kind of boat, canoe
and kayak one could imagine. None seemed to have all
the features and comforts that suited him, so Richard
started to experiment and bring into reality his verson
of the ideal "hot spot" boat.
Soon, Richard had both a one and a two man boat that
he and his close friends could use to comfortably reach
those places that others couldn't go and that was the
hiding place of trophy game. Then the requests came...
Richard's friends started to ask him to build them boats
like the ones he had.
As more and more people saw Richard's boats, he began
to get more requests to build them. It became quite apparent
to him that there was a demand for what he had to offer
and that he would have to move out of the small garage
where he began building his boats. Today, Richard has
a new facility that allows him to build quality boats
with modern techniques that still offer the personal
touch that makes his boats so popular with his friends.
If you are the kind of sportsman that doesn't want to
be where all the other hunters and fisherman are, and
you want to be sure to arrive safely and in comfort,
there's only one choice for you........an original, handcrafted
CREEK BOAT by Richard Hinson.
